Xbox 360 got some 'last gen' games too, if anyone remembers walking into Walmart at all... Tony Hawk, COD 2, etc. games from Xbox. I think the same is happening here for Wii U, except the gamepad is a different take on hardware, and graphics/audio aren't gonna get so realistic you can't distinguish the difference between reality and the virtual world, so I think having the graphics Wii U has pretty much set in stone as the standard, is a good thing overall. Sony/Microsoft have the research teams from every gadget you can think of working on what will be best for their next consoles, vs. Nintendo customizing and simplifying with a little extra from their own hardware specialists. I guess Nintendo had no idea all these companies would have such specifuc similar motives back in the 80's. Oh well...

I don't get why people constantly complain about the Wii U's third party lineup. It's been pretty damn good for a launch console and I don't see how anyone could argue otherwise. Sure it'd be nice to see other as-of-yet-unreleased content appearing on the Wii U but the launch lineup was pretty good. I mean look at the holiday lineup of new best selling games....

Wii U Launch

  • Just Dance 4
  • CoD BO 2
  • Assassin's Creed 3
  • FIFA 13
  • Madden 13

Not at launch but did appear later or will appear on Wii U soon

  • NBA 2k13
  • Need for Speed Most Wanted

Not on Wii U

  • Halo 4
  • Far Cry 3

Wii U exclusive

  • Nintendo Land
  • New SMB U

.......... so what was the complaint about launch? That we also got some games that were upto about a year old? Would it have been better if we didn't?
:S

Apparently it's because every multi-platform release from the last two years and all upcoming releases aren't already available or announced, because that's pretty much how every other console launch has ever been.

I am just going to put a random question here, why the heck did the 360 have such low sales in Japan. Microsoft cant just keep ignoring a huge chunk of the market. As long as Nintendo and Sony sells well there, Microsoft can do fantastic and still have lower sales worldwide.

1) How would an Xbox get God of War or Shadow of the Colossus in the first place?

2) that's not exactly comparable. The 369 still got a lot of games close to when they launched on the older systems. However the following year the 360 was included in most of the new game releases something that can't be said for Wii U.

But it did get

Gun
Call of Duty 2
Fifa O6
Madden O6
NBA Live 06
NBA 2K6
Need for speed most wanted
King Kong the game
Quake 4
Ridge Racer 6
Tiger Woods 06
Tony Hawk American Wasteland
Geometry Wars Retro Evolved

I think a problem is that when we look back in hindsight 5 years from now or even 10 months from now the Wii U could have an amazing launch/Windows line up. Problem is that were still waiting for games to come out.

Another bog perception issue is that the Wii U is in the same postion the 360 was in during 2005 and we haven't seen Nintendo push it as near as well. Off the back we knew what was coming a year in advance and Microsoft took advantage of being the only console on the market grabbing tons of exclusive content. Right now the Wii U is looking like

NintendoLand
News Super Mario Bros U
ZombiU
Rayman Legends
Scribblenauts unlimited
Lego City Undercover
Monster Hunter Ultimate
Wonderful 101 (I'm guessing this is in May)
Nano Assault Neo
Little Inferno
Chasing Aurora

As well Nintendo has been pretty damn vauge on what they consider a launch windows.

Whereas the Xbox 360 window looked like

Kameo Power of the elements
Perfect Dark Zero
Project Gotham Racing 3
Ridge Racer 6
Amped 3
Condemned Criminal Origins
Quake 4

But in the end who cares about all that when one has fun games to play.

I will say that I'm really confused at Activision for porting the Amazing Spiderman a year after it released. Quite a few Wii U ports fall into that thinking, Its probably good of your Nintendo only but a lot of those games I played a year before.

WAT!

Microsoft publishes a lot more content on XBLA than Any of Microsoft does LM their respective platforms. (Which is ironic considering the while Microsoft no like games meme)

Sony only uses PSN for a few more art house titles which even though usually are good is a huge waste of the platform.

I'm looking forward to Nintendo's first party platform as they usually support 3DSware well (fluidity, pushmo,sakura samurai) they also have quite a few developers that will only develop for Nintendo platforms. (Renegade Kid, Shinen, Way forward Original titles)

WAT!

Wii U has been out for two months and you're already saying this. Did the 360 get all those games in two months? I doubt it

1. Top ten games on metacritic for the Wii U in 2012 vs the top ten games on metacritic for 360 in 2005
Untitled
it really does speak for itself.... as well as the fact that the total library for the Wii U was larger....

2. We're not even a month into 2012. The way games are anounced these days we don't know what the Wii U library will look like by July let alone by the end of it's first year

3.

Did you notice that in my previous post I listed all of the best selling games of December 2012 that didn't come to Wii U. It was a list two games long... and it included Halo. So if you want to "win" whatever argument you are trying to constuct here to make yourself feel better about the 360 for whatever reason I'll give in on your God of War and Shadow of the Colossus point.... but now there's just Far Cry 3 in the "games the Wii U missed out on" list.

4. Quite frankly I don't care about this whole fanboy war thing. My only point was that the Wii U had a pretty damn good launch, better than the 360 did even. Even if it didn't though and if it falls into a Mario/Zelda/Metroid only hole I still won't be losing too much sleep over it because it's really just fun. If the Wii U never gets Watch Dogs, the next indie awesomeness, Portal 3 or whatever I'll just play it on PC.

They could TRY to appeal to Japanese gamers. Heck, I don't really like western games. I mean don't they want money? Can't they just appeal to both tastes.

As the list Sony_70 posted points out, I'm afraid I'm going to have to disagree with you on this point.

Oh, they did. Don't you remember those JRPGs that hit the 360?

Console market is rapidly shrinking in Japan and with most Japanese devs also trying to apeealing to the west their isn't that ,much of a point.

But early on they did try to push the console hard in Japan,

Lost Odyessy
Blue Dragon
Tales of Vesperia
Infinte undiscovery
The last remnant
Star Ocean 4
Phantasy Star Universe
Final Fantasy 11
All of those exclusive shumps
Dead or alive 4

Market didn't care for what ever reason. Even last year Microsoft showed off having exclusive games for Kinect made by Japanese developers.

Diablolical Pitch by Grasshopper Manufacture
Haunt by NanaOn-Sha (the creator of parapa the rapper)
Crimson Dragon by Grounding Inc (the dev team behind Panzer Dragoon and Phantom Dust)
Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor by From Software

Don't know if Microsoft plans to invest heavily in Japan again. I have heard that Microsoft wants Crimson Dragon to become a franchise. I think aquring a few Japanese developers would be a good start since they lack a presence in the region when it comes to owning studios compared to reasonable investments in North America and Europe.

A shortlist would be

Grounding inc (Microsoft wants crimosn dragon as a franchise and I want another Phantom pain)

Mistwalker (don't care who just somebpdy save them from doing ios games)

Pick up Devil's Third and the stupid since Igataki's deal with THQ fell through.

Platinum- a purchase would probably never happen but would love to see them work on Jet force Gemini with Vanquish as a template.
